the massachusetts health care law. the same law that become the framework for the affordable care act. i don't remember conservatives complaining about the law then. back then everyone was all smiles, even this guy. a top official at the conservative think tank, the heritage foundation. look how happy he is. but now suddenly the heritage foundation is the group leading the charge against the president's health care law. it's even supported senator ted cruz's anti-obama care tour this summer. and today senator cruz continued that crusade at the headquarters for the heritage foundation. >> it is a particular privilege being here at heritage, heritage plays such an important role in helping articulate and defend conservative principles across this country. and in no fight has that been more apparent than in the fight over obama care. >> but republicans were on the other side of that fight just a few years ago. they've completely flip-flopped. now the whole right wing is against it. why? because president obama is for it. but he's come too far to back down now. >> and if if was hard doing it jus
of massachusetts, willard mitt romney sat down to sign his first legislation of health care reform law. nothing like it existed in the country back then. but republican mitt romney and the late democratic senator ted kennedy and a bunch of other folks from the state worked very, very hard to craft a law that made universal coverage possible in the great state of massachusetts. governor romney signed that law publicly with a big grin on his face back in 2006. well, today, president obama returned to that very room to talk about his signature health care law, which is based on what massachusetts did that worked so well in that state. the president was introduced by mitt romney's successor in massachusetts, governor duval patrick, and both the president and his friend, governor patrick, talked about what has gone wrong or can go wrong, with health care in your state. they talked about what could go wrong in the initial rollout, what goes wrong and how that stuff can get fixed. >> but our launch seven years ago was not flawless. we asked an i.t. staffer who has been at our connecter since the begin
they're in a union or not. mr. griffin has extensive experience in employment law. he's highly respected by his fellow labor lawyers on both the union and business sides. as general counsel for the nlrb he will safeguard fair compensation and working conditions for all american workers. this week the senate will also vote on a number of other crucial executive nominations. some of whom have been stalled for more than a year. the senate will consider the nomination of katherine archuleta to serve as director of the office of personnel management. that is an extremely important position. she started her career in public service as an elementty tri schoolteacher. she will be the agency's first hispanic director. this is what she said -- and i quote -- "you do it as public service because have you a deep passion for public good and civic engagement. that's her quote. she's working in both the transportation and energy departments under president clinton, she served as chief of staff to tib the the labor secretary hilda solis for three years. she is emintentsly qualified yet ms. arc
intentions. left over halloween imagery for you there. a deep dive to the effort to fix campaign cash laws that set washington on a course for dysfunction. good morning. it's friday, november 1st. i'm always thinking about another race ahead and another contest. at 1600. let's start with the first reads of the morning. we will talk weekly round up of all things. hillary clinton is not exactly hunkering down and keeping a low profile. in case you missed it, she has an aggressive fall schedule. as impressive as any potential presidential candidate. over the last ten days, a flurry of speeches and fund-raisers has taken her from buffalo new york to chicago to beverly hills. this afternoon, pennsylvania. she key notes the conference for women in philadelphia. it ends a week where we learned every woman in the senate, democratic side is privately signed a letter urging her to run. hollywood in the form of the once close supporter who had split with them to support obama in 2008 is wacking enthusiastic. otherconfidants claim she is running. >> i'm behind hillary if she runs. that's up to her. if
and working to make the law work even better. and it's because you had a approach model that we built the affordable care act on this template of proven bipartisan success. your law was the model for the the nation's law. so let's look at what's happened. today the affordable care act requires insurance companies to abide by some of the strongest consumer protections this country has ever known. a true patient's bill of rights. no more discriminating against kids with pre-existing conditions. no more dropping your policy when you get sick and need it most. no more life time limits or restrictive annual limits. most plans have to cover free preventive care like mammogras a and birth control. young people can stay on their parents' plans up they turn 26. all of this is in place right now. it is working right now.np they. all of this is in place right now. it is working right now.iyp the 26. all of this is in place right now. it is working right now.all of now. it is working right now.26. all of this is in place right now. it is working right now. the last element of this began on octobe
of that law were found unconstitutional. one third of clinics were set to close their doors when the law would have gone into effect. one provision required doctors performing abortions to have admitting privileges of a hospital within 30 miles of that abortion facility. federal district judge wrote the admitting privileges provision of house bill 2 does not bear a rational relationship to the legitimate right of the state in preserving and promoting fetal life or a woman's health and in any event places a substantial obstacle in the path of a woman seeking an abortion of a non-viable fetus and is thus an undue burden to her. the judge struck down some of the law's restriks on the use of pills used to induce apportion. wendy davis issued this warning during her filibuster of the bill. >> i'd say if you vote for this bill you're simply happy to ignore medical science and watch women and children die for no reason. >> texas families are stronger and healthier when women across the state have access to quality health care. i would rather see our tax dollars spent on improving our kids' schools ra
the health care law. >> if you like your health care plan, you keep your health care plan. these folks need to stop scaring everybody. if you like your health care plan, you keep your health care plan. nobody's going to force you to leave your health care plan. if you like your doctor, you keep seeing your doctor. i don't want government bureaucrats meddling in your health care. but the point is i don't want insurance company bureaucrats meddling in your health care either. if you like your private health insurance plan, you can keep it. if you're one of more than the 250 million americans who already have health insurance, you will keep your health insurance. >> well, now, that promise is proving impossible to keep and we're hearing from people who buy their insurance on the individual market like self-employed realtor debra who recently got a notice from her insurer saying her policy will no longer be offered because of the new requirements in the law. >> all i want is what i currently have. i want to keep my doctors, and i would like to have lower premiums. >> the health care law require
abortion law. the anti-abortion law attracted national attention this summer, not just for its severity, but also because of texas democratic senator wendy davis and her 13-hour-long filibuster, which temporarily thwarted republicans' plans to pass that law. despite that filibuster and despite large protests, texas republicans did get the law passed, and governor rick perry's signature on it set in motion a countdown to texas clinics that provide abortions having to shut down. the law had been set to go into effect on tuesday of this week, so a few days ago. and a dozen clinics in the state expected to have to close their doors that day. on monday, at the eleventh hour, a federal judge stepped in and blocked the implementation of the law, saying it was unconstitutional, so the clinic stayed open. but tonight, a higher federal court, the appeals court for the conservative fifth circuit has overturned the monday ruling, which clears the way for the law to go into effect, basically, right now. this ruling, late tonight, means that a third of the facilities that provide abortions for women
. the supreme court rejecting oklahoma's appeal to reinstate its strict law banning medical abortions, specifically those performed with the drug ru486 known as the abortion pill. the court initially agreed to take up the appeal this spring but later asked oklahoma's court to clarify what the law covered. the court responded by saying the measure effectively bans all medical abortions. that apparently wasn't enough for justices and now oklahoma's supreme court decision avoiding the law will remain intact. pete williams joins us live. this is one of a number of abortion related cases and high court is expected to consider soon. >> right, but consider the importance of what the court did here. as a technical legal matter, what the supreme court did here today, no presidential value and expressed no view on the laws and said we're not going to hear this case after all. consider the fact in the spring when it looked like enthuse law in oklahoma was to restrict not to ban the use of ru486 and one other pill for medicinal purposes the supreme court was willing to look at that. oklahoma said
told the truth to americans about his health care law going back to the campaign. >> when he was trying to get the law passed, repeatedly said, if you currently have health insurance, you'll be able to keep your plan. this morning, david axelrod was pressed on that point and said the majority, the vast majority, would get to keep their plans. he no longer works at the white house. from that podium, will you admit when the president said, if you have a plan, you'll get to keep it, that was not true? >> it's true there are existing health care plans on the individual market that don't meet those minimum standards and therefore do not qualify for the affordable care act. >> greg, i want to talk about ridicule. when your policy or your campaign or your candidate becomes the target of ridicule on "saturday night live," have you a huge problem on your hands? >> i don't really think so. i think -- i feel like the joke is on us for laughing. oh, finally, the cool ki are now seeing what all the dorks have been seeing for two years and we're supposed to be grateful for this one little, you know,
benefits of this law, and this outreach is coming as the administration keeps getting hit with headlines like this in "usa today." small firms race health deadline. in the "washington post" sticker shock leads to anger. add to all of this that the associated press now estimating that more than three million people have already received cancellation notices from their insurers. >> why did not you or somebody else say to him, mr. president, don't say no matter what, you're going to keep your health care plan? >> hindsight is 20/20. >> that's why you're there is to say it's not hindsight. >> re-election rival and former governor mitt romney and on "meet the press" this weekend where he accused the president of dishonesty and had this warning about the president's second term. >> i think the key thing that the president is trying to get away from and that is that he told people they could keep their insurance and that was not the truth. and whether you like the model of obama care or not, the fact that the president sold it on a basis that was not true has undermined the found
at the university of washington law school in 1965 during his freshman term. he was a brilliant young man with a warm and friendly smile. it was his intellect and love for this country that made him an outstanding leader. he served as chairman of the house agriculture committee and worked hard bringing these two issues together allowing chairman foley to have support in the house for both. he believed in and practiced ability and bipartisanship. his view was after the elections were over, democrats and republicans should work together to deal with a national legislative agenda. seeing his strong leadership qualities and the belief in getting things done for the american people, speaker tip o'neill appointed him to be the with and he was unanimously elected to be our majority leader and then our speaker in 1989. he worked closely with bob michael and they remain great friends after they left congress. later, president clinton named speaker foley to be our ambassador to japan. as a staffer to war and, i worked with him on the spokane world's in the created traumatic change for the largest c
in on the health care law's fate. until recently, many had not felt the impact obamacare would have on their everyday lives. but as premiums increase, paychecks fall and individuals face tax penalties in the coming months, people are rightfully outraged and they want their voices heard. >> we're going to talk about it right now with cal thomas. he's a syndicated columnist and fox news contributor. kristy setzer, the president of new heights communications and former spokesperson for former vermont governor howard dean. good to see both of you. >> hi. >> good to be here. >> cal, i'm going to start with you on this. i want to ask you, what do you think is the best move for republicans next? >> since they don't own this, arrest they will, there was not a single republican vote in congress for obamacare. i think they should get out of the way and let the full impact be felt by the american people. the initial preview of coming attractions is already out there. look, centralized government never works. it didn't work in the roman empire. it didn't work in the soviet union. both of which

can expect if washington democrats continue their stubborn defense of this partisan law. now, mr. president, on another .atter politicians regularly come to washington promising fiscal responsibility. since congress passed the bca with overwhelming bipartisan , washington has actually reduced the level of government spending for two years running. the bca savings are such a big deal that the president inpaigned on it endlessly 2012. he bragged about the bipartisan .uts he told audiences from california to baltimore that he signed $2 trillion in spending cuts into law. like to say these days, elections matter and the president explicitly stated that he put these on the back of the bipartisan spending cuts. fromet the exit polls november. two thirds said raising taxes to cut the deficit was a nonstarter. whiched to obamacare, more voters said they wanted to repeal, the levels of support are striking. if our friends on the other side contradict -- keep obamacare contradicted by the then have to called the mandate for reducing the size of government day superman date -- a super manda
president obama signed the affordable care act into law have been turbulent, period marked by relentless and unanimous resistance from the opposition to establish law, consider this. president franklin roosevelt rolled out a series of programs he designed to combat the great depression, programs to build things, grow things, establish union rights and retirement programs for some federal workers. when fdr established the new deal, he, too, was met with fierce opposition. not just from members of the other party, but from the courts. during roosevelt's first term as president, the supreme court declared parts of his program unconstitutional. naturally that did not sit well with fdr so he sent congress a bill that would give the president the authority to appoint one new supreme court justice for every sitting justice over the age of 70. since there were six justices over 70 years old back then, that would mean six new justices. presumably all of them democrats. fdr lost the new deal rulings 6-3, but on a 15-member court with six new democrats, six new fdr appointees, he probably would hav
law while campaigning for terry mcauliffe in virginia. we'll ask the republican in that race ken kucuccinelli what he makes of all of this. first to that number and the guy who came up with it. he's a research scholar at duke university. he's also with the american enterprise institute. what seems to be raising eyebrows with this study, your study, chris, is that it dwarfs anything we've been told about people who might be self-employed and seeking insurance. this cuts to the core of those covered right now by their companies, that that could be short lived. explain. >> well, keep in mind 18 million to 50 million will actually literally lose their plans. that is they will not have their plan and have to start from scratch on the exchange. but 129 million represents the people who have even if they enjoyed their coverage in the past will have different coverage with the bells and whistles that will cost them more money in premipremiums. >> if you were covered at a premiere company, you were among those thought not to be affected by this. you say not so. why? >> well, because about
to govern. >> we have to implement this law and the computer deal will get fixed up. don't worry about that. everybody's forgotten when president george w. bush, a republican, put that medicare part d drug program in, it was more unpopular than the health care law and they had terrible problems with the computers. our side is not so ideological. instead of bashing and scream being how incompetent they were, we tried to help people understand the law and make it work. >> clinton begins another marathon day today at 10:15 in norfolk. democrats sweep the state in virginia and republicans get clobbered and it sends a real message to the state of the republican party and if republicans write that off, they do so at their own peril. democrats tried the same ignoring the signs that became the 2010 republican wave starting this virginia in 2009. so far president obama is yet to do a campaign event that was supposed to happen in the shut down, but shut down got in the way. could happen this weekend. hillary clinton will be raising money this week in california. kentucky senator rand paul will speak
) >>> the supreme court has rejected oklahoma's bid to revive a state law that the state's own high court said would effectively ban all drug-induced abortions. nbc justice correspondent pete williams joins me now to explain. pete, is this about ru-486 and like drugs? >> it is. it's about a two-pill system for inducing a medicinal as opposed to surgical abortion early in a pregnancy. it involves ru-486 and one other pill. what several states have done is to say if you're going to use these pills, doctors have to abide by the original fda labeling. none of the doctors who prescribe this system were using the fda labeling because they said it required too much medication. it required doctor visits that weren't necessary and it would have vastly restricted it. the oklahoma supreme court struck the law down saying it was unconstitutional. oklahoma appealed to the supreme court and in the spring, the court agreed to hear the case, but it said we're not quite certain what this law means. oklahoma supreme court please define it for us. last week the answer to that homework assignment came. the oklahoma sup

[applause] >> you guys deserve it. >> the greatest place on earth. >> president obama said it over and over. if you like your insurance plan you could keep it. the health care act will not change that. it turns out that millions of americans who are buying limited coverage are receiving letters after all. the president's response. >> if you're getting one of these letters, shop around in the new marketplace. you will get a better deal. >> the law requires that health insurance now covers hospital, maternity, mental health, and prescription drugs. >> if insurers decide it is a downgrade we said under the law you have to replace them with quality, comprehensive coverage. >> why not tell that to the american people to begin with? >> that is a good question. >> thank you. i thought so. >> you ask a lot of good questions. i
their repeatedly failed calls to repeal the law. >> if the president knew that these letters were coming and still indicated that you could keep your health care plan if you liked it, now, that raises some serious questions about the sales job of obama care. >> today on the hill, medicare chief marilyn tavenner. >> these individuals in a small group or individual market had no protections. they had no guarantees of coverage and they were still being charged somewhere between 20% or more of premium increases year over year. there were health care plans -- >> is that a true statement? >> it is a true statement, plans were grandfathered in. >> thank you for that answer. so if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor too? is that a true statement? >> i think doctors come and go inside networks. i am aware that there are issuers in states who are canceling their old plans, which were grandfathered in and moving to new plans -- >> what you just said about keeping your health care plan, isn't true. >> they can keep it. >> they can't keep it. they just got cancellation notices, you can't keep it. >>

showing a blatant disregard for systems and laws designed to protect the hotel. as our filings made clear, these are not victimless crimes. americans trust medications prescribed for their parents and grandparents, for their children and for themselves. they are selected because they are in the patient's best nterest. the laws enacted by congress and the enforcement efforts of the fda provide important safeguards to ensure that the drugs are proof -- are approved for uses that are safe as well as effective. efforts by drug companies to introduce their drugs into interstate commerce for unapproved uses subvert those laws. likewise, payment of kickbacks undermines the independent medical judgment of healthcare providers. it creates financial incentives to increase the use of certain drugs, potentially putting the help of some patients at risk. every time pharmaceutical companies engage in this type of conduct, they corrupt medical decisions by healthcare providers. they jeopardize the public health and they take money out of the taxpayers pockets. this settlement demonstrates that the depar
federal law enforcement agents should have been working with the authorities of pakistan to arrest him. >> and one really has to ask the question why the government was not able to arrest or even question him. this is islamabad we're talking about. it's the capital of the country. >> population is over a million people. jirga was a real public event. >> it was at a big hotel. it was advertised widely. it was an open event. >> tariq aziz was plainly visible to hundreds and hundreds of people. he talked with reporters. everything about him that the authorities could have wanted to know about his location and about his recent activities were known to the united states. >> it would have been extremely easy for them to approach him, sit down and talk to him or, for that matter, put him in jail. but instead the cia chose to go and kill him without giving him the opportunity to give his side of whatever it is that they thought that he had done. there is no evidence there whatsoever. and they've given him no lawyers, there's no judge and there's no jury. >> our preference is always to capture
